So yeah, the beat just goes on I guess.
Today was a great day too. Like what it's like to feel like people know you.
I went to Women in Black today. That's a silent vigil for peace that happens all over the world (and here in Buffalo every Saturday). We stood for an hour and afterwords there was a guest from India. Really lovely young woman doing some post graduate work at the University of Buffalo. And so we women in black are gathered around her in our little tribe, and, listening to this awesome young woman speak, it kinda felt like Opus. Having your peeps around you sitting on the grass listening to great information about justice. Yeah. Cool. So, sure, my tribe is me and two old guys and a bunch of women in their 50s and 60s. A strange looking gang to be sure. But hey, that's how we roll in Buffalo. Deal.
So I got my first post-Opus Anna hugs from Anna Walsh (the lady that wrote my poetry book with me). She is just so so awesome. And we took out the books I dropped off yesterday and started signing them. And she looked right through me and started telling me about dreams and energy and other things that I don't put much stock in. And she told me that she had consulted various energies and that she had asked them to send me another wonderful life-mate into my life and so I shouldn't worry about it, it was just going to happen.
Okay. Now... why the hell should that make me feel totally better? With as much as I don't believe in consulting energies, and as much as I do believe in actually making it happen yourself, somehow, Anna, just by telling me that, just made everything better.
I've been having a good day ever since.
And I just read chapter 1 of my 2nd novel to Birdie and Jessie and Jessie's friend Dave and I'm still totally stoked from that.
And oh by the way... my friend Christina (who rocks just as much as any woman has ever rocked in human history) called me and we caught up a bit and so then she has this crazy plan to move the art activist co-op into some crazy ass mansion and has some plan for how we can afford it and we would be a lot like the housing co-op and that would push the idea light years ahead in a single bound and we're scheduled to talk about it at tomorrow's AABCC meeting, and so I spent much of today considering moving out of my house that I've lived in for 20 years for the first time ever.
La la la lal la. Ch-ch-ch-changes.
Just maybe gonna have to be a different man.
